On the Record with Bob Costas
On the Record with Bob Costas was an American monthly sports television talk show hosted by the sportscaster Bob Costas. The show ran for four 12-week seasons on HBO from 2001 to 2004 before being revamped into Costas Now.
On the Record with Bob Costas was, in a sense, similar to Costas' previous late night talk show, Later, which Costas hosted on NBC from 1988 to 1994. Both programs featured one-on-one interviews with guests from the sports and show business.
In 2021, HBO announced a revival of the show, now titled Back on the Record with Bob Costas – presumably retitled to minimize confusion with the unrelated 2020 HBO Max documentary On the Record – which premiered on July 30, 2021, and air up to four times per year.
